Fatherhood: Raising Testosterone Be the best father you can be, while staying anabolic and healthy. A new research study that links lower testosterone levels with fatherhood may have caught your attention. The news and blog media are all abuzz with potentially scary reports that becoming a father and greater involvement in childcare activities results in a significant drop in testosterone. Don’t despair! This is not bad news for current or future committed fathers. And don’t turn your back on your family and your partner in favor of higher testosterone and singlehood. What Does The Study Say? High T Makes You More Likely To Become A Father Single non-fathers with higher T levels at the start of the study were more likely to become partnered fathers by the 4.5 year follow up than men with lower T levels at start, indicating that higher T is linked to mating success. How Do Researchers Account for this Decline in T that Comes with Fatherhood? What’s the Effect of Lower T with Fatherhood on Health? What About Cortisol?
